Just a few minutes’ drive from the West Coast and an impressive range of amenities, Holders House boasts one of the Island’s finest locations. To the east is the Green Monkey, Sandy Lane’s most exclusive golf course; to the west, the Holders Polo Club, the first of its kind established in Barbados and one of the most prestigious polo clubs in the Caribbean.

Located north of the popular and idyllic Paynes Bay Beach, Holders House is also within easy distance of Holetown's dining, shopping and nightlife activity, yet this private residence boasts a sense of privacy unmatched by the more populous developments and resort communities on the West Coast.

Accessed by a tree-lined drive that leads to another world entirely; Holders House is set amongst five acres of formal gardens, gently sloping lawns and tropical orchards. It offers a quiet serenity few can resist; the charming 17th century plantation home is surrounded by ancient Mahogany trees and features an aesthetically pleasing mix of traditional English and Barbadian architecture. While many newer homes emulate this style, Holders House is one of the few authentic plantation homes on the West Coast. Its layout takes advantage of the easterly tradewind breezes, and beautiful sea views can be enjoyed from the large coral stone sun deck and pool terraces, which also features a lovely dining gazebo with seating for 12.

The main house has a wrap-around verandah with comfortable seating areas, a grand piano and views to the sea - an ideal location for watching the sunset with evening cocktail in hand or entertaining friends and relatives. There is ample living space and an air-conditioned study; the open-air dining room comfortably seats 16.

There are five en suite double bedrooms with air conditioning and ceiling fans, as well as two additional bedrooms with a shared family bath. The master suite’s balcony commands a sweeping view over the West Coast and Caribbean Sea. There are also two guest cottages; one with one en suite bedroom and the other with two en suite bedrooms.

Home to the Kidd family for over fifty years, Holders House is well known to the Island’s cultural elite; each March the grounds play host to Holders Season, the Caribbean’s premier performance event. Established in 1993 by Wendy Kidd, it features a spectacular range of music and theatre by top international performers.

Adjacent 3-acre plot of land also for sale.
